Very strong design. I did not have a single prototype damaged by a strong throw against a wall or floor.

My real concern is users throwing grenades into someone else's face. I tried my best to keep the thing light, but 180bbs and gas have a finite weight which can still hurt if you get directly beaned. I had someone throw grenades at my head to see if they could dislodge my goggles a bunch of times. It hurt my face when he missed the goggles, but good pball goggles were very difficult to dislodge. I wish I had a mannequin head.

if you make one that can be fired from an m203 i'm sure there will be a long line of people waiting to pleasure you.

I'm kind of kidding but I'd really do want to make a 203 version. I have to first figure out if I can make one light enough to be fired safely. I'm really concerned with the goggle knockoff issues, so that'll be the first design challenge I'll have to overcome if I am to release a launchable version of my grenade.

Mortar perhaps, with propellant discharge when round is dropped in launch tube. Set delay for "x" seconds, drop down tube and BINGO!!!

Propellant could be a propane bottle good for "x" number of shots? Or even a 12g CO2? Maybe with adjustable delay you could choose airburst or ground burst?

Nice to see you haven't just been watching TV this whole time (like me)!!!

Well, I did play with a butane combustion mortar for a time. I worked out a nifty little arrangement which worked very much like a real mortar with cheap shells that threw nerf rockets. I thought about productizing it, but the close hit damage potential was not easy to remove. I didn't like how easy it would be to tilt the tube forwards and belt someone in the face so I abandoned the project. Also, mortars aren't really in the centre of airsoft game needs so it would be hard for me to amortize tooling costs. Risk of injury coupled with lowish appeal aren't good combos for products.

Someday I want to make a gallery of the goofy crap that got implemented into materials but abandoned for one reason or another. It'd make for some interesting browsing. It takes a lot of tries to land on a good feasible product. My batting average looks like crap.

I don't have a TV. I hate most TV shows and the ads often bug the hell out of me.

Awww.. Right when I start designing my grenade AI has to come out with something that'll be 9000% better.

My indoor team will probobly order 6 of these if they're ready by winter time.

Is there the option of using it as a 'noise only' distraction device?

As far as I can remember it could, jumps about 4 feet in the air with loud BANG!
I do not think it is intended use feature though, but very cool one.

Thats only what the CQB/skirmish players think. But yea, I agree about the danger part.

Well, thats obvious, especially since we're going to be able to buy a grenade that ACTUALLY WORKS well for about $70-100 unlike most made in Japan, China and Taiwan which we pay excessive duties and shipping fees for. Given its what Max says, his company should achieve market penetration for grenades after passing the product development stage of marketing.
